Rust Insurance Agency, LLC which began as H.L. Rust Company was founded in 1889 by Harry L. Rust Sr. Originally a mortgage banking firm, the company later expanded into insurance, property management, real estate sales and mortgage loan servicing. Ownership of the company passed to H.L. Rust Jr. in 1938 and in 1960 he sold the company to eight employees.

In 1982, the Jackson-Cross firm of Philadelphia purchased a majority interest in the H. L. Rust Company. The insurance division began trading under the name Rust Jackson-Cross Insurance Associates. In March of 1985, the insurance division was purchased by William P. Simons III, Victor A Sanders, and Herbert T. Beuermann and began operations as Rust Insurance Agency, LLC.

Since that time, the Rust Insurance has made a long term commitment to maintaining a presence in Washington's central business district.

Rust Insurance Agency has earned an outstanding reputation for providing high quality service to its clients in fields such as, technology, communications, medical facilities, religious institutions, and fine art exhibitions.
